Coach Manolo Marquez always keeps us grounded: Nikhil Poojary

Nikhil Poojary speaks about his time at Hyderabad FC and more…

With the league having entered its second leg, the race to the playoffs is bound to become increasingly competitive. Although Hyderabad FC have won only one of their last five matches, they currently possess the best goal difference (+10). Their success hinges on a good balance between their attack and defence. While their attack, bolstered by Bartholomew Ogbeche, has yielded 20 goals, Hyderabad FC’s defence has conceded only 10 goals – the joint-lowest in the division alongside Kerala Blasters.

The day before the match, Sportskeeda caught up with Hyderabad FC’s Nikhil Poojary for an exclusive chat. The versatile midfielder spoke about his team’s campaign, his experience of playing for Kolkata giants East Bengal and his three-year stint at Hyderabad FC.
